Eleson: I kinda like the announcement war:
Canon putting out a gazzilion of compact right after Nikons big announcement, just so the Nikon will fall of the first page on webpages.

They better not. The C300 is a joke but it helps to milk some last cash out of their ancient sensor fab. If they do that then they will have to shell out 2 billion for new fabs which is unlikely in this economy. End result, left in dust by Sony+Nikon alliance

maxz: Canon's days is over. I own a boatload of canon L lenses but their struggling is too obvious. They are still relying on their aged stepper and fabs that cannot compete with Nikon+Sony alliance. In order to do so they need to shell out two billion, heck they need to sell a few more trucks of old cameras to achieve that. 18MP as the 'all-in-one flagship', i can hear crickets in my house laughing.

Sorry Mr. DRebelX, D4 is sports camera, while 1Dx was advertised as a COMBINED flagship.

Canon is just catching up. Nikon's lower-end lenses have had superb build quality, nice paint finish, and weather resistant O-ring since long time ago. I don't own non-L canon lenses because they were made like garbage. Hopefully this marks a new start for Canon.

pcblade: The best of both worlds : Nikon Camera + Canon Lenses !

Yeah then you will have an actually USABLE 85/1.2L (I own it and it sucks on canon bodies)
